My experience living in the area has been great. I have been given the upmost respect. The people that work here are nice and friendly and willing to lend a help in hand. The library is beautiful and amazing. There are so many opportunities offered if you live here. The natural/organic bakery here is so beautiful and aesthetic. There are 6 grocery stores so you have plenty of options to shop at. Chick-Fil-A is coming to Harrisburg. The schools here are amazing and maintain such a high rating. The town itself is a close-knit town which is something I love about this town.

Mostly everyone knows everyone! There is also a great parks and rec center! The town is growing everyday and new families are brought to the area. The only thing that would make it better is if there was a chick-fil-a.
I love Harrisburg, its not to big not to small. Its just right for anyone looking for that. Harrisburg, NC has great schools!
